    Great software, that makes it incredibly easy to manage complicated paperwork, and makes managing employees less stresful

    Pros

    Bamboo stores all your important doccuments, AND manages time off requests, diciplinary paperwork, and employee bios all in one convenient platform.

    Cons

    The time off calculators aggregate in a strange way - monthly instead of daily.

    BambooHR has solved our leave requests, leave tracking, org structure, reviews, and general HR management needs.

    Pros

    We had no HRIS before BambooHR. As a growing company we got to the point where we needed to make sure everyone had a manager, regular 1:1s, regular reviews, and career development. Bamboo has the features we needed to make this easy and stable.

    Cons

    BambooHR comes with the basics, but prepare to spend more for features for reviews, 1:1 tracking etc. There is an ecosystem of applications that integrate well with Bamboo but it gets pricy fast.

    Does what we need it to do but would be cool if they gamified some of the mobile app experience, like maybe if they allowed you to play a match game with your co-workers info to get to know them better!

    Pros

    Very solid software for what we need it to do. It performs all the standard HR functions and gets us complient with everything we need it to do

    Cons

    We want to make a couple of our employees Hourly, but unfortunately for some reason it is all or nothing with Bamboo. You either have to go salary or hourly.

    Pros

    What's worse than having to gather up all your coworkers contact information to send out a mass text or something like that? Bamboo HR has an app that puts everything at your fingertips! You can easily text/call/email all your coworkers whenever you need to. The app is incredible and I highly recommend it.
    Using the website is just as easy and convenient as the app. Getting hired and getting all setup on payroll, signing contracts, and all that jazz was easy. I could do it from the comfort of my home and get it to my employer with no hassle at all!

    Cons

    I would like to be able to sync my phone contacts with BambooHR contacts. This may be a feature, but I haven't found it yet.

    Pros

    I have been very pleased with my subscription to Bamboo. The ease of use is the best feature - it is super easy to get around and find information easily. I also appreciate their responsive customer service team - their answers have been immediate and on point. Finally, they are adding features all the time, and I like that I continue to get value months after implementation.

    Cons

    There are some good reports, but custom reports don't have all the features - I know that is something that is coming. Also, I wish I had the ability to add fields easily - right now, I have to contact customer service.

    Pros

    The onboarding at the end of a hiring process is great, and you can customise the process, to a point. I like that it sends a notification to hiring managers that they have something to action. You can keep employee records current with certifications and training. The best feature our staff here like is the annual leave features on the dashboard.

    Cons

    A terrible recruitment tool. What's the point in having a database if you can't even do a simple Boolean search of every CV that's in there?? We also can't integrate this with local job boards, which means I literally have to manually upload every. Single. Application. So time consuming - you can't even bulk upload either. And if you copy/paste an advert from a Word document into BBHR, you lose the formatting.

    Also, some of the formatting of the dashboards could use some revision as well. If you can find a recruitment tool that integrates with BBHR up until offer, use it.

    What would be exceptionally handy, is if BBHR had a feature that allowed us to gather information on skills and capability within our own business, so we wouldn't have to find another piece of software to do this. Something not quite L&D but not quite workforce planning either.

    I enjoy using it because it doesn't allow people to see my paycheck unless they enter my fingerprint or password

    Pros

    We use this software at my current place of employment to receive our paychecks via direct deposit. I do enjoy how it breaks my check down into different categories, and it's a simply software to use.

    Cons

    I suppose the only thing i do not particularly like about this software is that it displays all of my hours worked, but it doesn't give me a total. I have to add them up myself if i want to know

    My experience with the software has connected me more with my organization by keeping all the information in a safe place.

    Pros

    The software is very intuitive, you can have all the data from your company. Some of the most important things to do with this software is tracking a probation period, employee turnover to name a few. You can set the access levels per department.

    Cons

    The mobile app only provides the basic information, if you find yourself needing to use your phone you should log in via a mobile browser.

    Love the projection feature - very happy to have a simple HR software for my vacation/sick time.

    Pros

    This is a really simple, not overly-complicated online software that allows you to keep track of your hours, what new team members are coming into the organization, who is on PTO, and lots more. You can update your image, your work history, your education, and everything else for your teammates to see. MOST IMPORTANTLY: It has a "projection" feature in the hours module that allows you to see how much PTO you have available at a given date. It shows how much you are accruing at a granular level.

    Cons

    So far I really don't have any criticisms of this software.

    Good!

    Pros

    We use this for all things HR, mainly vacation. It works great for seeing your available days and planning upcoming trips. Like that it shows upcoming birthdays and other people's time off.

    Cons

    It's a little confusing how the requested days off aren't removed from your overall balance until you use them. I understand it, but seems like there could be another number showing available days to request time off or whatever. Otherwise this is a good software.
